presented to the senate not passed by a long way. how is this for energy policy. president obama wants energy companies to pay for green energy. 2 billion dollars worth. new fees imposed on private industry, oil companies to pay for government sponsored programs. will that help spur growth? don't forget about those liberal environmentalists, a few dozen of them arrested yesterday at the white house. a very small group of people making very big headlines in the mainstream media. a hollywood actress, a kennedy. they don't even want-- they do not want the keystone pipeline, we're going to meet one of the protesters top of the coming hour. all right, where is the price of oil this morning? we're up $97 a barrel. where is the price of gas? up again, in fact, the spike continues. we are now at $3.62 a gallon. are we headed towards $4. we'll have an answer to that very good question next.
